About Overland Nurseries
Overland Nurseries was founded by Rodney and Julia Tallis in 1973. The wholesale nursery was started on the current 10 acre site that it now operates from in Arcadia, Sydney. Rod and Julia were long time members of the IPPS (International Plant Propagators Society) and both the Nursery Association of NSW and the Nursery Industry Association of Australia. After the sudden death of Rodney Tallis in 1981 the nursery continued to be operated by Julia Tallis.
In 1989 after completing apprenticeships at other nurseries Julia’s son’s Brent and Scott joined the business and took over the dispatch manager and production manager roles. Julia Tallis retired from the business in 2001 and handed the running of the business over to Brent as Sales Manager and Scott as General Manager. Since this time the business has continued to operate and flourish from the site in Arcadia.
